good news

"Christ plays in ten thousand places" and those are "the safest places on earth." (Peterson & Crabb) Places where "people of peace" (3DM) are living Jesus' answer to the Pharisee's question, "What is the greatest commandment?" - "Love God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength AND love one another." (paraphrased) And, where those same people are "salt and light" in their neighborhoods; commissioned & missioned to "make disciples" by introducing their neighbors to Jesus. (not the "church", denominations, religion, etc., but to The Son of God.) The Gospel of Jesus Christ is simple and yet profoundly beautiful: God sent His only Son to redeem us and adopt us. This Son shows us the Way to our loving Father guided by their Spirit. [The equally beautiful mystery is that we are invited into that infinitely loving relationship at the center of the universe!] But again, it's not complicated, love God, love one another. Start there, the rest will come. ;-)
